Michele Denise, known as Sugar Queen, is a versatile American vocalist and songwriter, who performs the Blues in Europe, USA & Asia. Her northern Florida roots explain her affinity with Gospel and Blues. In her early years, Michele played classical piano and received a university scholarship, but never straying from Blues and Gospel, she continued to perform in Southern USA churches.
In 2006, Michele relocated to Asia, where she greatly broadened her horizons, both in recording and live shows, including performing for King Tuan Yang Terutama in Malaysia!
A 2016 change of scenery saw Michele forming « Sugar Queen », collaborating with Belgian and Dutch Blues musicians.
